The Conservatives gained two seats in Redditch in byelections held on 17 July. The two seats were Batchley ward on Redditch borough council, and Arrow Valley East division on Worcestershire county council; both had been vacated by the death of Labour councillor Betty Passingham.

The other two byelections saw Labour hold Townfield ward in Hillingdon borough council, and the Liberal Democrats hold Uckfield New Town ward, Wealden district council.
